Brilliant, thanks. I'm now on the bus from the airport.

A few of my snaps from a rainy, cold Birkenhead , March 2020. It hasn't changed much since 2005.

The Residents Social Club looks like the inside of the hotel I stayed in in Carlisle on my recent jaunt around the U.K. :shock: - don't ask why I stayed in Carlisle ?!!!

Looking up Conway St in the search engine for this forum I see I missed this -

The obituary , by Spencer Leigh, refers to this interview he did with Ross in the 2001-

Ross MacManus - Elvis' Dad

BBC Radio Merseyside's Spencer Leigh has interviewed Elvis Costello's father, the dance band singer Ross McManus.

Can you take us right back, I know you were were born in Birkenhead, so can you tell us when that was?

That was on October 20, 1927. I was born in 338 or 328 Conway Street. They thought so much of me in Birkenhead they've knocked it down now, so my birthplace hasn't got a blue plaque on it.


So , like the church in Birkenhead that Elvis was baptised in , his grandparents house no longer exists.
